Tamsyn Manou blog

I really want to start this blog with just saying how much I love my sport. Track and Field has run thru my veins all my life and I hope that even thou retirement is imminent it will continue too for a long while to come.

The reason why I say I hope, is because when I was young I would watch so many of the athletes I loved and admired in our sport in Australia give their heart and soul and then disappear from the scene completely. As I got older I learnt that they would often leave disillusioned and soul destroyed, needing to completely turn their backs on a sport that they had also once loved like me. They would often insinuate that the sport had chewed them up and spat them out.
